Watch: Tavi's Sassy Tribute, Plus More Details on Her Magazine, Rookie
As planned, blogger and author Tavi Gevinson gave a Sassy-themed performance at an event in Gowanus, Brooklyn on Wednesday called "The Talent Show Presents: A Tribute to Sassy Magazine." Tavi and four other girls--a band called SUPERCUTE! and a 19-year-old blogger--performed a live reenactment of the '90s teen magazine's "Dear Boy" feature. Each girl asked some dude sitting on a stool various questions about "boys" ranging from, "Should I get married?" to "Do you believe in Ghosts?" to Tavi's sweet, earnest "Um, I was tricked...and...I thought we had to ask serious questions about boys...well now it's embarrassing, but okay..." and you get the idea (Tavi starts talking around 3:40). Sadly, we weren't able to see this in real life, but thanks to YouTube and the Village Voice, we got to hear Tavi talk like a normal teenage girl about a boy she likes and also know a little more about what she has referred to as a "top secret government project."
